So I have just finished the last product design of the newly BACKGROUND FREE ARTWORK! For approval to be sold on merchandise! Now it is time to see what happens in the next few days. I've run up on here to upload the artwork that will be available pending approval. And here they are;
NCF Supreme Commander Lezigha Boma
PAGAN-CORP High Priestess
PAGAN-CORP Supreme High Priestess
Sun-Mang of the East
Ellis-Family's 2nd-In-Command Salia-Go Ellis
NOW!? I selected these ladies because quite frankly they were the easiest to clean off and I'd drawn them TO BE THAT WAY! I also needed to remember and get reacquainted with My Photoshop Program, because I'm pretty fuckin rusty with it to be totally honest! Add to that fact that the program is on my old desktop computer which is not exactly stable! So as you can see in these pictures there are black backgrounds on most except for Ndidi's because I did not upload the background free picture of her. I also see some spots of white that I missed, which is another problem with my old desktop and the Photoshop Program on their. The desktop itself is old and UNSTABLE. Which is why I didn't really pick any of my more involved artwork. My FIRST TASK is to see what will and can be approved and get the ball rolling! So that is why I selected these pictures first. With that said I've gotta get to BED! Yes I have WAY MORE TO TYPE AND POST. But I don't have the time nor the energy after working at the day-job this weekend and then having it really SINK IN, that what I'd done this weekend was actually POINTLESS. I didn't get any overtime from it and while I may get a day off THIS WEEK, it is obvious that THE MONEY TO FINANCE WILLIAMS WORKS AND DAILY EXPENSES IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN A DAY-OFF, BUT!? I have been writing out pages for the first few stories and as some of you can easily see some of these pictures WERE NOT UP ON HERE YET, so!? I've DEFINITELY BEEN WORKING, with that typed!? Goodnight! LATER!
Now see, this is what the fuck I mean when I type about the fact that You're gonna run into two hard core FACTS about being able to not only follow Your Dreams but also build that Dream INTO A BUSINESS; #1) Finances, like I've typed to you before, without capital to finance Your Idea/Dream, insert whatever words apply where AT THE END OF IT ALL!? You have to have MONEY. To turn that idea into Your Head into something that CAN BE PRESENTED TO THE WORLD. Be it for advertising, where if you can't advertise Your Idea then who the hell is gonna know about it!? But when you're talking about having an idea in the first place, to turn it TANGIBLE IT TAKES MONEY, now the 2nd one!? This is the one that DESTROYS BULLSHITTERS who wanna talk about how Time is NOT REAL AND A CONSTRUCT OF OUR MINDS AND YADDAH-YADDAH-YADDAH-BLAH-BLAH-BLAH GINGER!
#2) TIME! Just, look at that. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK. AT. THAT! It is now 6:27am EST. Lemme turn off my alarm clock BEFORE IT GOES OFF AT 6:30am EST. ALL RIGHT DONE! NOW!? I've BEEN UP SINCE 4:30am EST, TYPING UP CRITICAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE EARTH-MANG OF MY STORYLINE-OMNIVERSE!
Mang-Android Human-Hybrids MAD-Bastards
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, just putting together the layout JUST NOW for the titles and then images YOU JUST SCROLLED DOWN!? It's now 6:35am EST. -_- I DID NOT WORKOUT this morning, because I have been REALLY!? I LITERALLY WAS AWOKEN FROM MY SLEEP WITH DETAILS AND INSIGHTS ABOUT WHAT I CAN REALLY SHOW THAT HIGHLIGHTS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL OF THESE EARTH-MANG! And NOTE! This is NOT. All of Them. This is simply THE MOST NUMEROUS TYPES. Bottom line is THIS! I'm typing and ideas and flowing faster than I can TYPE THEM! So I'm going and going and going and in the process as I type this OUT! I'm getting into THE GUTS OF WHAT ULTIMATELY BECOMES THE CUSTOMS AND CULTURE OF THESE VARIOUS EARTH-MANG AS WELL! What makes EACH TYPE TICK AND WHY! And then IT HITS ME "Oh shit I'M OUTTA FUCKIN TIME! It's WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY PAST 5AM EST NOW! And I'm SUPPOSED TO BE DOING STRETCHES AND WORKOUT!" However the Reality is that I KNEW AND KNOW "No way am I gonna remember ALL OF THIS SHIT, NO WAY!" so I KEEP TYPING! Next thing I know I'M NOW BEING REMINDED THAT I GOTTA GET READY TO, I HAVE TO HIT THE FUCKIN SHOWER! There is NO MORE TIME TO KEEP SITTING HERE TYPING AND TYPING AND I GOTTA GO AND GET READY AND HEAD OFF TO MY DAY-JOB! Right...? As I'm in the midst of really getting into.... You can fill-in the rest and figure it out for yourselves because you get my point. TIME. Without having control OVER YOUR TIME, then you are forced to piecemeal and force-fit WHEN YOU WORK ON WHAT. Mind you, MY DAY-JOB ALLOWS ME TO HAVE GOTTEN THESE DRAWINGS OF THESE CHARACTERS DONE;
AND ALL OF THE OTHER ARTWORK I HAVE POSTED ON HERE FOR THE MOST PART! However!? Facts are facts. When you DO NOT CONTROL YOUR OWN TIME? Then you have to FIND THE TIME, MAKE THE TIME AND EVEN STEAL THE TIME, WHENEVER AND WHEREVER YOU CAN! I will leave you with THIS, cuz it's 6:48am EST and I STILL GOTTA SHOWER AND GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE! BUT!? Lemme tell ya something!? WHOM. EVER!?!?!? Tells you "It's OKAY TO WORK FOR SOMEBODY ELSE OR NOT TO PURSUE YOUR ACTUAL DREAM JOB IF YOU HAVE ONE!?" SLAP THE SHIT! OUTTA THAT MUTHAFUCKA AND TELL'EM TO SHUT THE FUCK UP! Because YOUR TIME GOES AND NEVER COMES BACK PEOPLE! And We ALL KNOW NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE THAT MOST OF OUR TIME IS SPENT WORKING! Which means that YOU'D BETTER FIND OR HAVE A DREAM JOB THAT YOU HONESTLY ENJOY OR ELSE YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME WHICH MEANS YOU ARE WASTING YOUR FUCKIN LIFE DOING SHIT YOU CANNOT FUCKIN STAND AND WILL NEVER GET THAT TIME BACK! That is a UNIVERSAL. UNDENIABLE. TRUTH! So I'd SUGGEST, that you find out what YOU LIKE TO DO. See if You can TURN THAT INTO A CAREER AND/OR SELF-EMPLOYMENT! And then HAVE AT IT THEN! Because DON'T GET ME WRONG. My CURRENT DAY-JOB!? I'm one of the FEW PEOPLE who wake up Monday morning and DOESN'T GO APE-SHIT CUZ IT'S MONDAY AND MY JOB SUCKS! However!? It is OBVIOUS that what I am doing HERE is WAY BETTER but STILL NEEDS WORK AND DEVELOPMENT. Value YOUR TIME PEOPLE! Because once it's gone, IT'S GONE! And now MY TIME HAS RUN OUT FOR THIS POST! It is 6:54am EST and I GOTTA HIT THE SHOWER AND ROLL OUT FOR WORK! LATER!
Soooooooooooooh, I LITERALLY just finished taking all of My Rejected designs for the webshop. Creating a Word Doc, for which to save the info from these Rejected Designs. The Tags, the Description info, all of it. Because I'd spent time on my suspect old Desktop Computer here in the corner of My Room. Using its Adobe 2.0 Program to CLEAN OFF the Rejected Designs last week, where to say it was an adventure is an understatement! Now?! Just so you know, My Audience for this website has been growing steadily. It is nowhere near as large as it COULD BE, due to the fact that I am NOT LOOKING TO HAVE EVERYBODY AND THEIR MOMMA UP ON HERE! Never mind that everybody is always so gung-ho about telling Us as Black People, go build yer own shit! Then when THAT IS ACTUALLY DONE, the Pull Yerself Up By the Bootstraps Bullshit turns into "HOLD ON THERE NOW!? DON'T PULL YERSELF UP THAT MUCH BOY-O!!!!" And that is because common sense teaches and tell's you that once someone creates and does shit for themselves, well? Fuck do they need you for anymore, HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! -_- With that TYPED! I've said it before and I'll type it again, I'M LEARNING ON THE FLY HERE, LITERALLY! And it has been one BIG-ASS, SLOW-ASS, SOMETIMES FRUSTRATING-ASS, AND OTHER TIMES EXCITING-ASS, ADVENTURE! And shout out to My Son who just turned 16, I know WE have a LOT TO TALK ABOUT! And this website is ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT TOO! Because in the end, it will be yours when My Time is UP! And so will all of the properties and such associated to it and with it, but lemme slow my roll and come back around to why I am typing this right now and why I have INTENTIONALLY USED Rolento's theme of Gimmick from SFA3! I spent a lot of time cleaning off those Rejected Design Pics last weekend. And as you all know the majority of My Time is dominated by My Day-Job. But within THIS DAY-JOB I have the means to WORK ON MY REAL JOB WHICH IS THIS WEBSITE! But I am reaching a point where I need MORE TIME STRICTLY FOR WILLIAMS WORKS and I'm starting to BUMP-HEADS with the day-job as far as TIME-WISE AND WHAT I NEED TO DO AND HOW IT MUST BE SPENT, because I'm not someone who is unprofessional. When I am at My Day-Job, I WORK MY DAY-JOB AND IT COMES FIRST! Doing that job PROPERLY IS PARAMOUNT and ONLY WHEN THAT IS DONE! Do I do the work for Williams Works. So that means that when I take time to clean up pictures that have been REJECTED for production on the merchandise I intend to sell, then...? It has to be done RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. So when I took Lancelot Landers;
Initially I THOUGHT I could submit this AS IS and then they'd just go on ahead and PUT IT ONTO THE MERCHANDISE THE WAY I DESIGNED IT! ^_^ SILLY ME! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA, THAT'S TOO EASY! Turns out that they Rejected this due to THE BACKGROUND BEING UNCROPPED! Now? I thought I could get the entire drawing printed AS THE DESIGN. But they've made it clear that ONLY THE DESIGN ITSELF IS GOING TO BE ACCEPTED. This leads to PROBLEMS for more complicated Artwork I have like this one;
Because the entire drawing is MEANT TO BE PRINTED, now!? Not to worry, I've FIGURED OUT THE FACT THAT!? I'm gonna have to put up my more SIMPLISTIC ARTWORK, single-shot pictures, etc! And leave these types off the webshop FOR THE MOMENT. Till I can go on ahead and GET WITH A PRINTING COMPANY THAT CAN ACTUALLY HANDLE MAKING MERCHANDISE WITH ALL OF THIS GOING ON IN THE DESIGN! ^_^ So there ya go, PROBLEM-0 SOLVED! Now back to why I'm typing this RIGHT NOW! So I got the Lancelot Landers drawing REJECTED. Uncropped Background, fine, lemme get that done!
So now you KNOW ABOUT THIS PART, because I told you about it before. I was using PAINT to remove the backgrounds but A WHITE BACKGROUND STILL SHOWED UP! So I'm thinking AT THAT TIME THAT, I'd gotten it RIGHT! Lemme go on ahead and put it UP! And understand that the entire process includes the Name of the Design. The Description of the Design. Tags for the Design so it can be searched, etc! And then placement on whichever merchandise that you wanna sell it on, you design that part! Then you work out either your own prices or standard prices based on what you've chosen to put Your Design on! You can also SHARE YOUR DESIGN SO THAT OTHERS MAY USE IT AND YOU GET A COMMISSION OFF THAT TOO! So yeah, I'm thinking, all right! DONE! And you know how that went because I already typed to you about that, well!? I finally got what I needed and as I started off saying I got Ye Ole Janky-Desktop from LONG AGO that has Adobe 2.0 on it SO I'M SET RIGHT! RIGHT!? RIGHT! RIGHT!? -_- Clearly you can see that this went wrong, but the question was HOW THIS TIME? And I will tell you how.
I used the proper tools but DID NOT KNOW THAT JPEG DOES NOT SAVE WITHOUT A BACKGROUND! ^_^ Isn't that GREAT! Isn't that CUTE! >_< And I didn't know this, HOWEVER!? When I kept on looking at My Finished Cleaned background ON ADOBE 2.0 IT SHOWED IT WAS CLEAN! But when I saved it I had saved it to jpeg, so I simply ignored the fact that I was STILL SEEING A WHITE BACKGROUND WHEN I'D CLEANED THEM OFF! Opened it with the Adobe, BACKGROUND IS GONE. Looked at them through Office Picture Manager, white background. So I ERRONEOUSLY jump to the conclusion that shit is cool. I go back REDO ALL THE DESIGNS FOR APPROVAL AND...? I saw that the white backgrounds were still there, JUST NOW! Needless to say I am not exactly happy, BUT NOT EXACTLY ANGRY EITHER, and whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, you might ask...? ^_^ BECAUSE I STOPPED BEFORE FINISHING ALL THAT FUCKIN WORK! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH! Once I saw the white backgrounds I knew I'd fucked up somehow and simply decided it was now time to crack open some books and do some reading and some google searching as well and that is how I found out that EVEN AFTER YOU CLEAN THEM OFF?! DON'T SAVE THEM TO JPEG BECAUSE IT WILL RECREATE THE WHITE BACKGROUND! Isn't that GREAT! ^_^ HAHAHAHAHAH, no it's not fuckin great! See it would be GREAT! If I had MY TIME THE WAY THAT I USED TO IN MY OLD APARTMENT! And I'd like to give a SHOUT OUT TO MY FORMER SURROGATE SON! Who knew FULL-WELL, hey!? I can't tell him that the technology he'd been waiting for and the means he'd been waiting for NOW EXIST FOR HIM TO SELF-PUBLISH! Cuz then he'll transition straight TO SELF-EMPLOYMENT! And then send me packing since I'm NOT ACTUALLY CARRYING MY WEIGHT WITH HIS IDEAS AND BOOKS! So that was KINDA WELL-PLAYED AND SNEAKY-LIKE, BUT NOT QUITE GOOD ENOUGH! With THAT TYPED! I am going to have to redo OR reopen these supposedly cleaned jpeg and see if I can SAVE THEM IN ANOTHER FORMAT, or!? I'll simply have to REDO THEM. Either way that is the gimmick I learned about. You can't clean backgrounds and then save them in jpeg. Unless you like wasting your time....
